Hi Grigio18,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Are you using the Windows version? If so the shortcut is ALT + LMB (left mouse button) + RMB (right mouse buttom) + drag horizontally to change the brush size and vertically to change its hardness.


thank you so much, it works!

And on the Mac?

I even cannot set the need shortcut for [ and ] in the keyboard setup.
